Subject[PATCH 23/24] tracing/kprobes: Disable kprobe events by default after creation
Date
From: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@redhat.com>

Disable newly created kprobe events by default, not to disturb
another user using ftrace. "Disturb" means when someone is using
ftrace and another user tries to use perf-tools, (in near
future) if he defines new kprobe event via perf-tools, then new
events will mess up the frace buffer. Fix this to allow proper
and transparent kprobes events concurrent usage between ftrace
users and perf users.
